HOUSTON, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valerus (, one of the
world's leading providers of integrated oil and gas handling and processing
solutions, announced that they have been awarded a contract from
Pittsburgh-based EQT Corporation to provide 15,000 HP of compression for two
compression stations in southwest Pennsylvania.


Valerus will assemble the large horsepower components in their Smithfield,
Pennsylvania facility beginning in November. Compression and other
mission-critical equipment will be deployed in the Marcellus and Utica shale
fields leveraging Valerus and other local companies. Local hiring in the
Valerus facility is expected to increase.   

The agreement will create a local manufacturing presence and reduce delivery
time and transportation costs. This will also be an economic benefit for
Pennsylvania through the creation of new jobs to support the region's
unconventional gas market, which is expected to grow for decades. 

Valerus has served the Northeast U.S. since 2009 and opened the Smithfield
location in 2010. "This project will create more jobs at our Smithfield
facility and at the local companies that will work with us to manufacture
components," said Chris Scheve, VP of Northeast operations for Valerus. "The
sum total of this effort will be an increased ability to provide Valerus
customers in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays with access to compression
more quickly and at reduced transportation costs than if it was manufactured
